Children's Accounts

We’ve been a good place for savings for many generations since 1853, this includes the latest generation too.

Today, we have a range of accounts for our youngest customers from our Children’s Saver to our Junior Cash ISA. You can open any Children's Saver or Junior Cash ISA in branch or by post with just £1, or transfer an existing Child Trust Fund to Skipton from another provider.
